Custom Borderlands 2 Attack Scorpio NERF by JohnsonArmsProps Custom Borderlands 2 Attack Scorpio NERF by JohnsonArmsProps
Hey guys!

Ok, so this was a commission for a fan of Borderlands 2 and it required about as much masking as any Nerf I've ever done. It has 3 layers of custom cut camo shapes as well as the rest of the areas that had to be isolated for painting black. I'm very happy with how it came out and so I wanted to share it with you just in case there's a few fans of B2 on here (ok, I know there's at least a few of ya!) :)

Thanks for checking it out and all comments are appreciated.

Excellent work .

But honestly , the attachment on the top rail is a Nitron Scope or a Ammo Counter ? Recently , I found some ammo counters . And most of them are based on the Nitron Scope .

Hi how much $$$ (money) would you take for this? I extremely love love your work and I would do anything to own one of your master pieces. Thanks :D I know your work is probably not for sale and if it is it would be all ready sold but I might be lucky.

Now that looks like a real Borderlands 2 gun. Going for the Scorpio look?


Really well done.
Very impressive.

Thanks, bud!  It was the design provided by the commissioner and I really dug the funky camo design.  I'm glad you approve :)

It really is close. Remember, the gun in game can spawn with different scopes, so it will match yours even further.

You should always give it a try if it's in your budget.  I know the cost of materials can start to mount up quickly, but just pick colors you know you'll use again and it's not so bad.   I wish you luck and let me know how it goes for ya!

Sorry, no there isn't.  I basically went by screen captures and it was quite a bit of work with all the masking and keeping things as clean as possible.

How did you make the stock for it? I'm interested in doing something Borderlands-ish for upcomign conventions, and would love any tips you can offer

I actually just took the stock from a Nerf Retaliator to use with this setup.  It would require you buying another nerf set or you might be able to find it cheaper on ebay or similar :)  Good luck to ya!
